    Hello

    We are operating a Facebook page that allows visitors to submit posts. As the page is dedicated to the sale of used equipment, we would like to have the form that the visitors can use. In that way, the posts would be structured and include all required information.
    Is it possible to integrate a Jotform form and generate the post automatically from the submission?

    Regards

    To clarify, do you want to forward your Facebook posts to your Form or do you want to insert a link to your form in your Facebook page? 

    Can you please share to us more information on how would you like your form to be used with your Facebook page?

    Looking forward for your response.

    On our FB page, we would like to have a form that visitors can use instead of the normal "create a post" feature of FB.
    When the form is filled and submitted, the content shall appear as a new post on our page.

    We don't have a this feature with Facebook however, you may try using Zapier to connect Jotform and Facebook.

    Hope this helps.

    Zapier will work for us. Thank you very much for your advice.

    Another thing: Our form will probably contain several hundred drop-down and single-select fields and lots of conditional logic. Will this slow down the load times of the form and/or its execution? Is it (as an alternative) possible to divide the whole projects into multiple forms and "call" a different form based on conditional logic?

    Since your last post is not related to your original post, I have moved it to another thread. Will respond to you there shortly.
